When I was but a youngster, Christmas meant one thing,
That I’d be getting lots of toys that day.
I learned a whole lot different, when Mother set me down,
And taught me to spell Christmas this way:
C is for the Christ child, born upon that day,
H for herald angels in the night.
R’s for our Redeemer,
I means Israel,
S is for the star that shone so bright.
T is for three wise men, they who traveled far,
M is for the manger where He lay.
A’s for all He stands for,
S means shepherds came,
And that’s why there’s a Christmas day!
Another song from my school days!
